Credit Problems after Divorce

By Law Office of Michael P. Forbes  Nov. 3, 2011 5:32p

Part of the divorce settlement is deciding on who is responsible for debts incurred during the marriage.  Even if the divorce agreement itself specifies that certain debts are to be paid by your ex-spouse, what happens if they default on the agreement?  Creditors will start coming after you as most likely, the debt was incurred while you were still married and your name is still associated with the debt.  In this situation, it would be wise to consult with an experienced attorney to help you resolve the problem and avoid creditor harassment.
